Showers of Blessing!

“But he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.” 1 John 5:18.

The enemy uses his weapon against the Lord’s children in all ways he can. But it is of no use because the Lord’s children are protected and especially when we are covered by the blood of Jesus the enemy’s weapon shall not prosper. In fact, the weapon which the enemy uses against the believer will turn against the enemy itself. I have seen that whenever it happened to me.

King Saul was very angry when the women sang as they danced and said, “Saul has slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.” (1 Samuel 18:7-8). “So Saul eyed David from that day forward. And it happened on the next day that the distressing spirit…” came upon King Saul from the devil. (1 Samuel 18:9-10). 1 Samuel 19:1 says, “Now Saul spoke to Jonathan his son and to all his servants, that they should kill David; but Jonathan, Saul’s son, delighted greatly in David.”

David’s anointing worked for him. He was supernaturally protected by the Lord. We read what King David said in Psalm 34:7, “The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.” King Saul had a tragic end. “The archers hit him, and he was severely wounded by the archers” 1 Samuel 31:3. “Therefore Saul took a sword and fell on it” 1 Samuel 31:4.

In the book of Esther, we find Haman was filled with pride after he received a promotion from King Ahasuerus. Everyone in the palace and the King’s servants bowed and paid homage to him except Mordecai, who would not bow or pay homage to him (Esther 3:5). Haman decided to kill the Jews (Esther 3:8) and laid out a plan to kill Mordecai too. The King ordered Haman to be hanged on the same gallows which he built for Mordecai.

Be assured that the enemy cannot even touch you or your family because you are born again.

Be blessed!
